Alonzo E. Moore was born in 1842.
(He may have been born in New York and possibly related to William A. and Lucy Moore of keene, Ionia County, Michigan.)
Alonzo was 19 years old and possibly living in Ionia County when he enlisted in Company D on May 13, 1861. (Company D was composed in large part of men who came from western Ionia County and Eaton County.) He allegedly deserted on July 5, 1862, at Washington, DC. On August 11 Alonzo was reported as having arrived in Detroit Barracks, and he returned to the Regiment on September 8 at Fairfax Seminary, Virginia. He was subsequently employed as a water carrier. He deserted a second time at Leesburg, Virginia while the Regiment was on the march, either on October 7 or November 2, 1862.
There is no further record.
(He was probably not one of the three civil war veterans living in Michigan named Alonzo L. Moore and Alonzo S. Moore, living in Quincy, Branch County and Marengo, Calhoun County, respectively, and Alonzo Moore, living in Benton Harbor, Berrien County, in 1890.)
